MAKE AMERICA BLEED AGAIN.
When bodies are turning up all over the city, the cops begin to suspect that notorious serial killer John Kramer is back…. but he’s been dead for a decade. The eighth film in the Saw franchise came after a ten-year-long break. On paper it looked like this might be a fresh reboot, but the question of whether Jigsaw is dead or not, and the clever time jumps that bring him back, are not new – we’ve seen all that in previous films. The directors really miss an opportunity to do something fun with the concept, but that said, fans are likely to find this outing OK.
